Emily Rampling thought she understood the nature of power.
But she didn't know the unexpected forms power could take, bending and adapting to suit its needs.
She wasn't aware of the ways power could infiltrate unnoticed into the highest echelons of government, soaking the most hallowed chambers with its influence.
She didn't realize the methods in which power could weave an invisible fabric that manipulated society with hidden secrets and unannounced agendas.
In fact, Emily Rampling didn't understand anything at all about the nature of power.
But she was about to find out.
About the ways power could pulse.
About the ways power could penetrate.
About the ways power could PERVADE.
REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Shew... where do I even begin with this one?
Simply put, PERVADE LONDON is an exquisite, masterful piece of art! It swept me away to the enchanting streets of London and lavished upon me a provocative romance between Xavier and James - two elusive men who will seduce you - and Emily, a competent heroine who will surely charm you. And the story? Will utterly pervade you.
Emily Rampling is a simple girl with a simple life. She’s also a rising star amongst her peers. A budding violinist with a bright, promising future on a path provided by her deaf mother who would never hear her play. While busking one day at Piccadilly, she runs across a mysterious man she feels compelled to help.
A stolen violin, a curry meal for two, and a priceless gift set these two strangers on an unexpected, salacious and intriguing path neither of them expected.
Xavier Rothschild is a polished, brilliant, eccentric, complicated and dangerous man. He grew up to lead an extraordinary life. Not because of the silver spoon he was provided, but because of his unique ability to observe, read and dissect everything and everyone around him. He’d give Sherlock Holmes a run for his money and probably jump above him, leaving Mr. Holmes baffled as to how he got so high. He’s a man with secrets and when he meets Emily, his life has taken a very different turn than the one he was leading just days before. She comes to him in a time of need and her generosity, kindness and inner light pull him in.
Captivated and compelled by one another, they can’t resist the allure. So they embark on a journey with conditions and a warning - his life is arduous to the extreme, so she’s never to ask about his past and always do as she’s told.
There’s a sinister obstacle lurking in the shadows. James Ballad - enigmatic, seductive, confident and the absolute deadliest of men - who seems to be pulling all the strings. He walks into a crowded room, and everyone disappears, leaving only him and his prey. He’s the man neither Xavier nor Emily can deny.
From the moment I started this one, I was completely absorbed. Riveted to the pages as the story unfolded, weaving its way into my heart and soul. Xavier was dreamy and original. His prowess unparallelled. James was erotic and powerful. A lethal alpha male who pushed all my hot buttons. Emily was a heroine I couldn’t help but love. Beautiful and curious, her temperament on par with someone I could easily connect with.
This story was gripping, entertaining and sensational. I loved every thrilling moment. The author flawlessly lays out a brainteaser I was succulently consumed by.
And those love scenes? My goodness! Perfectly carnal and positively lascivious. The chemistry between James, Xavier, and Emily was scorchingly hot, hot, hot! Absolutely torrid! I couldn’t get enough.
The Wrap Up:
I’m a huge fan of this author. If you’ve read my reviews, you know this to be true. I can never get enough of her stories. There’s a reason for this. She writes beautifully, without exception. There’s always something unique in her stories. They are creative, exciting, and I’m always fascinated by the plot and the rapturous journey it takes us on. I’m always surprised by the outcome. Her characters never cease to WOW me on every level. Intelligent, unmatched, sensual and always, always interesting.
PERVADE LONDON is just such a story. A sparkling jewel in her ever-growing treasury of phenomenal reads. I can’t wait for book two!
